A la Cité des Congrès de Nantes. On behalf of the organizing and scientific committees, of the EUROMAR and AMPERE organizations, I am delighted to invite you to EUROMAR 2018 in Nantes, France, from July 1st to 5th 2018. It is the first time that EUROMAR will be held in France since it was created in 2005.
As the booming capital of western France, Nantes is an inviting, eco-friendly medium-sized city, often rated among the best cities in Europe for its quality of life. Nantes is easily accessible by plane (international airport with direct flights to major European cities) or by train (2 hours from Paris, 23 round trips per day). The conference venue, La Cité Nantes Events Center, is located in the heart of the city, at the confluence of the Loire and Erdre rivers, close to many cultural and historical attractions as well as a dynamic restaurant scene. Nantes, European green capital in 2013, is also very close to charming and authentic areas, such as the Muscadet and Loire Valley vineyards or the sandy beaches of South Brittany. As every year, EUROMAR 2018 will be a major forum to exchange on the most recent breakthroughs in magnetic resonance, including new methods and instrumentation as well as high impact applications in a broad range of scientific fields, from physics and chemistry to biology and medicine. Leading scientists from all over the World will be invited to share their most exciting results, while numerous slots will be reserved for upgraded posters. Our sponsors and exhibitors will also be here to present their latest products and innovations. Social events will provide, as usual, the perfect atmosphere to exchange ideas and stimulate collaborations with the members of our magnetic resonance family. EUROMAR will be held for the first time in France. On this great occasion, we will make you discover a selection of the best locally sourced food and wines! Finally, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, we will be able to offer attractive registration costs, affordable hotel rooms, and to grant a number of student stipends on the basis of submitted abstracts. We are confident that EUROMAR 2018 will be an unforgettable event and we hope you will join us in Nantes in July 2018! Patrick GIRAUDEAU. Chair, EUROMAR 2018. On behalf of the organizing and scientific committees.
